I would like to integrate some other applications with Solarwinds Orion's homepage by making simple log-only "Alerts" or "Events" that appear in the website summary.
A practical example of this is to use Solarwinds Syslog tool and generate an alert event based on a small set of input options. This works for SNMP, but not for Syslog.
Example usage would be as follows:
OrionAlert.exe -h RouterA SEC-6-IPACCSESLOGP 156443: list 101 denied tcp 126.96.36.199 -> 192.168.1.1
OrionEvent.exe -h RouterA -i 192.168.1.1 SEC-6-IPACCSESLOGP 156443: list 101 denied tcp 188.8.131.52 -> 192.168.1.1
-i = Source IP
-h = Source Hostname
-n = Source Node
-l = Log Anyway if node is not valid
Any one of the "source" options would run a SQL query against the database and query the most relevant node.
If the node exists, the executable exits with code 0.
If the node does not exist, and -l is not specified, exit with error code 1 and a diagnostics message.
If the node does not exist, and -l is specified, log the event in "plaintext" for the event log to a non-specified node, and exit with errorcode 0.
If the node does not exist,
